Trust a poet if a good insult is what you need!
Want to know how to really insult someone? If a good swear is what you need, trust a poet to come up with the goods. Say what? Yeah, well it has to be the right poet obviously.
Back in the day, John Cooper Clark was your go-to insult monger. And his poem “Twat” is a classic. He may not be from Yorkshire, but we love him, and his swears ! Next time someone needs a good telling, you know where to turn.
We never knowingly turn away from a curse. A good swear is sometimes what you need. Even when you don’t mean it. DYP have a fine line in potty-mouth, all with the best possible intentions! We’ve printed the old favourites. We’ve learnt some new ones from our customers. We’ve made some up. Here’s some of our- and your- favourites:
Anyone for tennis? Balls to that, we’re cracking out the summer cocktails.
It’s the first day of Wimbledon and that means just one thing… it’s time to shake and stir some summer cocktails. We’re not very sporty here at DYP but we do like a good cocktail. And Wimbledon seems like a good excuse to dust off the cocktail shaker. Ignore the weather forecast, make like it’s summer, and get mixing. Here’s some recipes to get you started. Don’t forget to share your own recipes with us if you’ve got some good ones.
Gin Prosecco Love and Laughter
Since we’re pretty much fuelled by gin prosecco and laughter, we’ll start with this one. Discerning drinkers discovered the joys of mixing gin and fiz at least 150 years ago.
- 1 measure elderflower cordial
- 1 measure lemon juice
- 1 measure gin
- Lots of ice
- Plenty of laughter
- A bit of love
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the elderflower cordial, lemon juice and gin, and shake.
- Add some laughter and love and shake some more.
- Strain into a tall glass, and top with Prosecco.
- Serve with a spring of mint if you’re being posh.
The quintessential Wimbledon drink. Apparently the recipe is a closely guarded secret, with only a handful of people knowing it. But do you know how to serve it?
- Lots of ice
- Mint leaves
- Slice the strawberries, cucumber and orange
- Fill a glass or jug with ice
- Pour in 1 part Pimm’s and add 3 parts lemonade.
- Chuck in the fruit and serve.
Gin Raspberry Beret
A twist on the traditional French Martini and an ode to Prince all in one.
- 1 part raspberry cordial
- 1 part gin
- Tonic water
- Lots of ice
- Slice of lemon
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice
- Add the gin and raspberry cordial
- Strain into a glass
- Top up with tonic water and add a slice of lemon
- ( you can of course just sling everything into a glass if you don’t have a cocktail shaker)
The Never-Ending One
And finally, our favourite of all the summer cocktails. If someone asks you if you’d like a game of tennis, tell them, when you’ve finished your drink.
- Champagne flute (or wine glass, highball, tumbler, mug)
- Orange juice
- Fill the glass with prosecco. Take a sip. Chuck the mint away.
- Refill the glass.
- Take glug.
- Refill it.
- Take another sip.
- Save the orange juice and lemonade for the next morning.
Happy drinking. If you can still knock a ball over the net after all those, you’re not doing it right!
Remember to drink responsibly, don’t be stupid, be safe.
Fancy a piece of rock, cock?
Saucy postcards were all the rage back in the mid 20th Century. They might have gone out of fashion, but we’re carrying on the tradition!
Here at DYP we like to think we’re original. But we’re not the first to produce risqué cards. Some of them were pretty awful. But we admire the stand they took against uptight politicians.
Postcards first became popular at the end of the Nineteenth Century. The Post Office gave permission for them to be sent through the post. And it wasn’t long before they started getting a bit racy. By the 1930s saucy postcards at the seaside became all the rage. Cartoons featuring stereotyped characters – the fat vicar, the drunk, the “henpecked” husband – were mixed with a liberal smattering of bawdy innuendo.
The suggestive captions never quite spelt out sex. But it was usually implied. And the cruder they were, the more popular. During the 1930s they sold at a rate of knots. 16 million cards were sold a year.
Various companies produced them, with numerous cartoonist working on them. But the biggest name was Donald McGill. His postcards were the most popular. And they remain the most popular as collectors’ items too.
Donald McGill was born into a straight-laced “respectable” Victorian family. At 32 years of age, he gave up a secure job to start his career as saucy postcard artist. He continued to work til his death at 87 years. Throughout his career, he had to fight of not only the disapproval of his family, but the law.
During the 50s the newly elected Conservative government made a stand. They believed that these cards were so outrageous, they were undermining the moral fibre of the country. They were determined to stamp out such obscenity. The 1857 Obscenity Act was called upon. Shops were raided and closed down. Artists were arrested and tried. They almost broke the postcard industry. In 1954 McGill was subjected to a show trial and sentenced with a huge fine.
In 1960s government relaxed a little bit, and the postcard industry recovered. But through the 70s and 80s, the quality of art work deteriorated. Changing attitudes meant that people weren’t so keen on the stereotypes and sexism. The cards saw a decline in popularity. McGill never made a lot of money from his art. Perhaps because he kept getting fined?
Its funny to look back on those cards and think they caused such outrage. We’re sure we’d be up in court too if we went back to the 50s. Society seems to realise that morals aren’t undermined by a bit of cheeky. And aren’t we glad of that!

What stops you from buying at an online shop? Well it is a question I’ve asked myself quite a lot recently, since I’ve wanted to understand shopping habits of my customers. I have access to the information of customer click-through from my own sites, to understand how customers experience and use my shop. Which is very useful information and helps me try to improve my shop and make it easier for you to use.
The part I can’t work out is how it makes you feel – I want you to have an amazing experience and of course purchase outrageously naughty cards. (I know my work makes many of of you chuckle!)
I’ve read an awful lot about buying online and of ways to entice your customers, improve traffic and sales but it all feels wrong. I don’t want to bombard you with lots of messages, promotions, sales and gimmicks because I don’t want to experience that myself when I’m shopping online.
I get frustrated when I come to a new site and I’m met with pop-ups every twenty seconds, where sites seem to offer perpetual discounts. It devalues your product and makes me feel like you don’t value me as a customer. The biggest culprit for this is Gap, I love their clothes but I now refuse to buy anything at full price because there is likely to be a sale on in a couple of weeks time. My argument is that if they made their products lower in price in the first place, would they need to keep offering discounts to gain more customers?
As a small business it’s quite difficult to offer sales as every penny counts but I also understand we love to feel that we’re getting our moneys worth too. It’s very tempting to offer sales and discounts but really are we just kidding ourselves?
It seems a lot of the online business advice wants shops to push towards these gimmicks and yet I bet they’re equally frustrated when they visit sites that do this back. Frustration is not an emotion I want you to experience when shopping with me, I want to make the process as smooth and easy as possible, so I’ve stripped it back and made it as simple as I could. (Though website building is not my forte! Remember I’m just a printer!) Yes I offer an incentive to sign up to the newsletter, where you can get 5% off of your order and I also have a pop up to share DYP via social media like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
I would love you to share my work with your friends and family, I wouldn’t be able to do this job without so many of you supporting me. But I also understand that it’s a massive ask on the part of your visitor and impedes your online shopping experience. I’ve tried to use plugins to let customers sign in from social media, or to integrate my shop within Facebook for example. Though if I’m honest I felt they were gimmicky and causes further dilution of the excitement of using the shop – another barrier to enjoying being online.
Do I have the answer? No not yet, I’m still relatively new to this and so I’m just blogging about my findings and musings about online shopping. I use a lot of my own gut instinct but I won’t lie that there are times it feels like I’m shouting into a void of noise known as the internet! The hardest part is trying to get awareness and raise my brand so that people find me. I don’t have a massive marketing budget, in fact it’s incredibly tiny and so that is why I find myself spending hours scheduling posts, or reading up on marketing so that I can find my audience.
So what does stop me purchasing online? Hidden postage charges, added taxes, page after page of checkout processes and pop ups. All of these things I’ve tried to address as best as I could with what I have available to me through my Shopify theme. Postage for example, is determined on the price of your shopping cart and country, as opposed to weight. I don’t add extra charges in and I limited the number of check out pages. Hopefully these things help make the experience smoother.
Ultimately though, you have to like what you’re buying and I need to be fulfilling a need you as the customer have, otherwise you wouldn’t have found me in the first place! So that feeds back into brand awareness and people being able to see you…I think I’m going to be some time at this game yet or win the lottery to have a larger marketing budget to gain a wider audience!
So on that note I shall go and mull some more!
